Street Trees

Denver Digs Trees provide Street Trees to be planted close to the curbside in the “tree lawn” between the sidewalk and curb or, in areas with no tree lawn, 10 feet into the yard from the curb. Street trees beautify our neighborhoods and improve our quality of life, including traffic calming, decreased crime, improved air and water quality, and enhanced property values.

Yard Trees

Denver Digs Trees also provides a limited number of low-cost Yard Trees, for private property planting. Strategically planted, the shade of these trees can reduce the amount of energy needed to cool your home, which results in lower energy bills and less carbon released into the atmosphere. These trees also enhance property values, buffer noise, and provide shelter for birds and other wildlife.

Earth Day Yard Tree Sale

In addition to providing low-cost Street Trees and Yard Trees, The Park People are also pleased to host the annual Earth Day Yard Tree Sale. This sale is held in conjunction with tree distribution day and offers great prices on quality trees. Sale proceeds support the cost of the heavily subsidized and free trees they offer each year. Depending on availability, the sale has frequently included small ornamental trees, trees with striking fall color, and fruit trees.
